The Tone King Imperial Amp recreates the tone and vibe of a vintage Fender amp and builds upon that even further.
This 20 watt, all tube, combo truly captures that classic blackface sound in it's rhythm channel.
The tone is easily identified by the Princeton or Deluxe Reverb lovers, but with more of an organic feel, like a classic tweed deluxe.
You get the expected shimmery cleans, but you also have the gritty overdrive that this type of amplifier is known for.
With that, you get an improved ability to control the timbre and expression of the notes with your fingering and pick attack.
The unique and effective Mid-Bite control makes the Lead Channel a lot more versatile than you would expect from a channel with only 3 controls.
The Mid-Bite control is an exclusive Tone King design feature which does a lot more than simply adjust the midrange level - it completely transforms the overdrive character. With Mid-Bite fully off, the Lead Channel reacts much like a tweed deluxe. When played clean, the woody resonance of the cabinet, liveliness of the 5AR4 tube rectifier, and the expressive dynamic response of the cathode-biased output stage work together to give you the raw midrange, silky top end, and loose feel of a genuine well-worn tweed deluxe - perfect for honky tonk or blues rhythm playing with a Telecaster.
